Students will complete a Theology paper and enjoy weekly worship times together with other students and staff.


About This Course

Students who choose to complete this music course will receive further one-on-one tuition in their chosen stream (Instrument, Voice, and Song writing). The Vision College Bachelor of Music (Contemporary Christian Music) combines performance and academic study. Students continue to develop skills in their elective (Voice, Instrument, or Song writing) and also develop higher research and academic skills. Students can study the type of music they love in their specialist voice or instrument electives including Rock, Pop, R&B, Jazz or Classical.

The degree programme has a balance of both performance and academic aspects and many of our graduates have been highly successful in their music-related careers which include performance, education, church leadership, music management and music production. Some have furthered their study with Post Graduate Diplomas or Masters degrees.
